Other survey findings include:
- React’s growth continues to dominate - 63% of developers use React, up 5% year over year. This makes React more than twice as popular as the next-biggest framework, Angular. React and its ecosystem of complementary technologies dominate web, mobile, and desktop development in the npm community.
- GraphQL is set for a boom - 23% of developers have already started using GraphQL, but 49% of all npm users are considering using it in 2019. npm plans future studies that will further examine the motivations and use-cases driving this interest.
- Kubernetes is big, and serverless is gaining serious momentum - 56% of respondents deploy using containerization technologies, and a surprising 33% of respondents already use “serverless” or “cloud functions” to deploy code.
